Le Musée des Beaux-Arts in Rouen is offering an exploration into the life of a central figure in the impressionist movement: the coal magnate François Depeaux (1853-1920). A compulsive buyer, this industrialist from Rouen owned almost 600 paintings and drawings, including as many as 55 by Sisley, 20 by Monet, but also masterpieces by Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec, Pissarro…
This visionary collector, who sought out artists, was the first to acquire a canvas in the series of Cathedrals which he saw being created by Monet’s brush in 1892-1893, and was also the owner of such significant works as Liseor In Summer by Renoir (Nationalgalerie, Berlin), or else la Rue Saint‑Denis, fête du 30 juin 1878 by Monet (Musée des Beaux-Arts, Rouen. He unfailingly supported the artists of his era and accompanied the impressionist movement from its beginnings to its triumph, and ensured its entry into public collections by donating in 1909 to his town a collection which was unique at the time, outside Paris. A donation of fifty pieces by Monet, Sisley, Pissarro, Renoir, Lebourg… which marked his zenith and his fall.
Weakened by an epic divorce, Depeaux relied on an empire which the First World War was about to ravage.
